DMX Gets Confused by Google, Questions the Word ‘Blog’
DMX may know how to rock the mic, but when it comes to computers, he is simply out of touch. Radio station Power 105.1 asked the New York rapper to use Google on a laptop and his response is hilarious, albeit a little troubling.
In the video, the agitated DMX tells the young female interviewer, “I don’t even know how to use the computer,” much to her surprise (and ours, too). She then asked DMX does he know how to Google himself? “No,” he says matter-of-factly. “It’s too much stuff. It’s too much stuff.”
In DMX’s defense, he has been arrested and jailed numerous times throughout the years. Unfortunately, while doing various prison stints he never had the opportunity to sit down and learn computers. Still, it’s amazing that DMX doesn’t know what a “toolbar” is or how a trackpad on a laptop works.
When DMX types in his three-letter word he asks the woman, “So what do I do?” She responds, “You hit enter.” Afterward, X looks around and seems befuddled by it all.
DMX did admit to one thing that we think irritates everyone when it comes to computers. The annoying load times and frozen screens (or for Mac users, “the colorful pinwheel of death“). “I don’t have patience for s— like that,” he growls. We agree, X!
At the end of the video, DMX is perplexed at the word “Google” and wonders why they don’t use an everyday word, like, search. “What the f— is a ‘Google’?” he asked. “That’s like something you call somebody, like a baby ‘goo-goo’ — it’s weird.”
In another Power 105.1 clip, DMX admits to not knowing what “blog” means. “That’s a funny word,” he says. “What’s it short for? Bloggeration?”
